Doggerland: Blink And You Might Just Miss It

Doggerland is the name given to a once-significant landmass now lost in the North Sea Basin. It connected the island of Great Britain to mainland Europe during and after the last Ice Age, and was gradually inundated by rising sea levels between 18000 and 5500 BC. Integral to this piece is the idea of “blink and you’ll miss it”, playfully combining the passing of time and the act of revealing something that is no longer there. Doggerland is an examination of an inundated terrain, of wearing away and disappearance.
